Don't let his face fool you: Charles is super excited about this swap!

We have a gallery!!

Swap name: One Tiny Unloved Creature Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: grufflepuff
Sign-up date range: March 2, 2016 to March 16, 2016
Date to send item by: April 19, 2016

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Additional Age requirement? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:
Theyre ooky. Theyre creepy. They might even be hairy, slimy, toothy, slithery, twitchy, or all of the above. To most of the world, theyre totally unloved, but we know better, dont we?

This is a swap to celebrate all the odd and unloved critters of the world. You will send your partner (and receive in return) one small craft based on one of natures least loveable critters. Your craft should be physically small but still something that displays all of the skill, love, and attention that you can manage. Standard swapping etiquette applies: if its not something youd be thrilled to open (and your lack of enthusiasm runs deeper than the animal itself), its probably not something you should send.

As usual, a gallery will be posted after the send-out date. Posting photographs will not be required, but its highly highly recommended. If youre unable to take and post photographs of what you receive, make sure your partner knows that before the send-out date, so they can take their own photos. We want to see what you got! Smiley

Im not going to make or enforce any rules regarding extras beyond discuss it with your partner(s), but make sure that the main focus of your package is your own handiwork. Additionally, although Craftster rules state that swappers only need to post in the swap thread once upon signing up, please try to post more than that (perhaps once a week?), so we know that youre still around, crafting, and interested in this swap. (This is not an out-and-out requirement, but if your communication is exceptionally poor, I will have to take that into account when leaving feedback.)

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you like 1, 2, or 3 partners?:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?:
Confirm that you are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

What are your 3-5 favorite unloved animals?:
Are there any types of critters you dont want to receive (i.e. bugs, rodents, etc.):
What are your favorite crafts to make?:
Are there any specific crafts you would like to receive?:
Anything else that I or your partner might need to know about you? (Allergies, Pinterest links, requests, personality quirks, etc etc etc. Anything goes here!):


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Just sent in my questions..and here they are Grin
1.  Anything in the cephalopod family.  LOVE all the squijy things Grin
2.  Aardvarks and pangolin
3.  Deep sea fish...any kind really..especially if they glow
4.  Hairless animals (including cats and dogs)..I think they are always amazing looking, but I know they freak lots of folks out.
5.  Artist choice--Surprise me with something interesting, disgusting, or freaky

My list was way harder than I thought it would be, which might be why it's a bit vague.  I had a hard time thinking of my critters as "unloved" I guess.  I mean....I love them!  I had to try and figure out how the "normies" would see them Grin

surreal - Aardvarks and pangolins ROCK    \M/

Also, I just was throwing up a random listing while working, and it quickly became clear "unloved" just translated to me as "THESE ARE THE NEATEST LOOKING CREATURES/ANIMALS EVER!!!

p.s. I have to go back and clean up my list.  *cough* IWasAtOverTwenty so must be culled...

I have a set of 80s Halloween cardstock decorations - skeleton,  witch, and ghost - with minor imperfections. PM me if you would like them!

I am so signing up for this! It's going to be very hard to limit my list.

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Definitely signing up, working on my questionnaire now. I'm also in the narrowing it down to a reasonable number stage.

« Reply #8 on: March 02, 2016 02:44:37 PM »

I also just signed up for one, but I can't pass this up either!

And the blobfish is so loved-I teach elementary art and I started an underwater landscape painting unit to go with my 5th graders' science oceans unit and they were all asking me which ocean zone the blobfish lives in! Cheesy

« Reply #9 on: March 02, 2016 02:46:47 PM »

Oof, I know it's hard to narrow down the list of cool creatures. There are just too many strange and awesome critters out there.

Very happy to have so many people signing up on the very first day! Smiley

As for the blobfish: yeah, I know it gets a lot of love, but I didn't want to put anything too alarming on the very first page and scare people away. <3
